It was a cold and windy day but we hope folks still had fun at the annual Carnaval parade. Here’s a look at some of what’s happening next week.

Tomorrow night, why not celebrate the holiday by going to The Cat’s Pajamas at the Make Out Room? This month is billed as a “Salty Soul Explosion,” featuring “bad Boy poets, whiskey voiced blues singers, Quinn the Miraculous, a fairy princess with a sharp mind and an even sharper tongue and solid gold dancers.” Also, on Thursday, the Make Out Room hosts a benefit for “Something With a Little Poison In It,” described as “an experimental pornographic interpretation of The Wizard of Oz.”

Artists Television Access is hosting the Free Form Film Series on Wednesday and a 70-minute series of animation shorts from Wholphin on Thursday. Sonic Youth on 16mm? Sounds great.

The Victoria Theater this week is hosting both Kung Pao Kosher Comedy show “The Color of Funny” on Wednesday night as well as the Anti-Corporate Film Festival from Thursday through Saturday nights. Kicking off the film fest is the West Coast premiere of the documentary “Sweet Crude,” a look at oil companies and the Niger Delta, with a Q&A with the director after the film.
